keep in mind that it will need some modification at the lower rear to integrate with the angled up design of the bed.
Could you upload some pictures of the parts on your truck? Would like to see a better pic of how they fit on yours!

I've allways wanted to build a crew cab dually 4x4 but the rear fender thing allways bothered me. This seems like a better idea than the fiberglass alternative that may be hard to find.

70 Bronco TX is starting off with a positive reputation.
Hmmm, I thought I had posted pics of my 79 F350 rear end in some thread like this, but apparently not this one. Not the person you were asking but maybe it will be useful.

The bed was modified by previous owner (a third party company specializing in it?) and are made of metal.

Those look pretty decent, I would like to see a more pronounced lip on the front and maybe stick out a bit more, but I like them otherwise.

I guess I have gotten used to the newer bigger style dually fenders. I never really cared for the early dodge dually fenders. Allways thought they looked like an afterthought!

That's a killer looking dually! I can't believe how awesome that looks.

And that's some amazing power it's got going to those wheels. I'm surprised it doesn't have wheely bars on the back of it.

I have see that truck before, and I like those fenders as well. The biggest issue is Ive heard you cant get them any more!

Peronally I would like the two tone to carry over the dually fenders.

Obviously everyone would like to see something different on their rig, but I think this one is cool!

Anyone consider using the fenders from a stepside truck 1953-1979?

I like these the best of any posted in this thread, they compliment the lines of the truck nicely. I HATE the ones off that aquarmarine 2 tone with the diesel. That whole truck is pretty fugly but those rear dually fenders are leading the assault on my eyes.

And btw I don't think they are all metal, from the cracking I see I'd guess they are a good bit bondo too. :-)

I can't figure out why he didn't taper it back down towards the top? It is an interesting design but I think it looks really weird with that rail going from 4" to a foot wide there. lol

It's all personal taste. I think the flat top on those last ones (where he flared the entire bedside) look WAAAAAAAY better than any of the fiberglass or otherwise boogered on bulges that cover jsut the wheel.

either way, whats up with the naca vent?
edit, I read that he is using them to feed a transmission cooler... I'm not sure what the point in that is, its not gonna get much air flow back there, not nearly as much as one mounted up front, and if he's gonna use fans on it anyway might as well tuck it behind the frame rail. Looks kinda ricey and "add on" to me.

You are probably right!

I figured it was just very inferior metal used that went bad quickly, but it was probably that and bondo. The rest of the bed is in pretty good shape, tho

I suspose he could have taken another bedside ane re-created that upper taper. But that would have been a ton more work. At least the way he did it the metal work isnt going to be as severe.

The way poster did the work is pretty neat and food for thought. Like I said before.. would like to see it finished and sittin on the truck.
